Craft Project with Planters Peanut Jar

We love to eat peanuts around our house!  And our favorite would definitely be Planters.  Well, with all those jars that we were throwing out, I decided to hang on to the last one that we had. 
I felt crafty one day, pulled out that jar and gave it a coat of spray paint (white), added a little twine and came up with this…

This is a little shelf above the computer desk in our den.  I am not sure what to add to it yet, I was thinking flowers…we shall see!  But until then I think that I will make lot’s more of these because I really like the organic feel that I get from seeing it.
By the way…that picture was my parents back in the day…like early 80’s days!

I like it Joanna! There is a bag of burlap around here, I could see me covering one in burlap and wrapping jute twine around the top to hold it together. Now you have my mind working this early in the morning! It's amazing the things I get done now that I am kicked off of Facebook! LOL! I will start a new account soon. Just trying to see how long I can hold out.
